  1. When you bought the car, did you not get two sets of keys ? And therefore two touch-keys ? Spare touch-keys are available to buy, but they need to be synced to your system with something often called the Jolly Programmer. Most Cobra dealers / alarm repairers will have them (keys and programmers), but COVID might stuff you at the moment.
  2. Can't go myself, but LoT emailed me to say that there's still space if anyone fancies it. Very cheap for a weekend day at Donny and weather looks OK.
  3. Gav at Unit 4 for repairs and he has a tame local for the final prep / spraywork.
  4. Yep. Well done Chris ! Sonya concurs 👍
  5. I think I have a hi-res copy somewhere. We're both fairly sure it wasn't Mark doing the photos in the chopper, but can't remember who it was. There was an 8ft long canvas printed for Hethel 60th as well. We think Howard (RIP) had it for storage ??? Be good it it could come back to MLOC if possible.
  6. We had two there. I used to know which ones. I think mine is the blue one in the full-stop after the C. It was all well planned, until about 20 extra cars turned up and we had to re-shape the letters and add the full-stops ! As chief organiser, Sonya got this for Christmas 2008.

    Any chance those seats will fit an S1 Elise Mind you, with the price tag on the car, I bet each seat would cost more than an entire Elise
  8. How bad is the split ? There will still be grease in the joint so would probably be ok to get there, especially if you drive slowly.

    I should have done the roll-bar cover as well :-)
  10. Another thumbs-up today. Took the car in last Friday afternoon for an urgent radiator swap. New rad/fans/heater matrix didn't arrive until Tuesday but the fan mounting kits were missing. They arrived yesterday and the car was ready this afternoon. Given that this was a clam-off job, drain coolant, refill, bleed, etc, plus other jobs on rear lights and trying to sort the fan switching, I think 4hrs labour is VERY reasonable. He even washed it ! Cheers Gav.
  11. Looks good. Do you do things like the dash panels / top / centre tunnel etc?
  12. Bis - I asked Gav to swap our plates. Make sure you get the right car back....

    Wiper spray bar modification

    All you need is Citroen part no. N93780 bx washer jet spray bar from here and a bit of tubing to connect it to the existing pipework. You may also need a connector join the tubing to your existing pipework, a 90 degree joining connector will do the job. I softened the spray bar in boiling water to straighten out the odd curve at the end, then put it around the lumpy fitting at the end of the S1 wiper using a small tie-wrap at the loped end. Two extra pin-holes and the water sprays the full length of the wiper. Most people seem to put the end of the bar just before the middle of the blade. It's easy enough to take apart and loop around to the top of the wiper instead though, that said even though the arm only covers the bottom of the wiper the force of the wiper moving throws the water up the screen covering the whole window anyway.
